WATCH: Jon Stewart Mocks the Hobby Lobby Ruling that Corporations Are People

Jon Stewart returned from vacation with a segment on the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling, which he found to be, what's the word again, oh yeah, wrong.


He found the part about how Hobby Lobby considers Plan B contraception and abortifacient, and the fact that the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says it isn't, particularly rich. "But what would they know about vaginas?" says Stewart. "Compared to a corporation that sells foam cones and glitter."

Jessica Williams joins for some commentary and calms Stewart down by reassuring him that it's a narrow decision that only applies to "closely held" corporations. What are those, Stewart wonders? "Think of that as a hug," Williams says. "A hug that squeezes all the sluts off the health plan."

More hilarity ensues. Watch:
